2023-09-25 09:18:31

The pursuit of the French vehicle continued, with the support of teams from the Brussels-West zone (Jette, Ganshoren, Koekelberg, Molenbeek-Saint-Jean, Berchem-Sainte-Agathe) until the fleeing motorist ultimately caused an accident near the Strombeek-Bever exit of the A12. He was then able to be intercepted, not without effort: he resisted his arrest so much that another Brussels-North police officer was injured. He is incapacitated for work for at least five days.

This Monday morning, the Brussels-North police zone specified that the seriously injured officer suffered several fractures and was still hospitalized. According to the district, the fleeing driver was under the influence of alcohol.

It is simply not acceptable for police officers to suffer any kind of violence while carrying out their duties.“, reacts Olivier Slosse, the corps commander. “I wish our colleague a speedy recovery. Our zone will obviously legally support the colleagues affected yesterday and will ask the Police College to be able to take legal action against the author of this violence.
